Research groups

Research within the School of Biosciences is largely divided into five main themes. Approximately 25 research groups are funded by a number of agencies including UK research councils, Horizon2020, the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, the Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation and a range of other charities. The research is of a particularly high calibre: in REF2014, 88% of the School's submitted outputs were in the "world-leading" or "internationally excellent" category, placing it in the top 10 across the UK. The School has an unusually strong commitment to translational research, impact and industrial application, with a substantial portfolio of enterprise activity and expertise​. This research is underpinned by excellent research facilities and a range of large collaborative grants involving a wide range of UK biotechnology companies.
